Ringside For Youth a big hit with Senators captain

It's a unique way to celebrate a worthy cause.

The annual Ringside For Youth event, which supports the Ottawa Boys and Girls Club, moves to a new home tonight when the charity venture takes centre stage at the CE Centre. It's a night of amateur boxing featuring competitors from the Beaver Boxing Club in Ottawa.

Over the years, it has become a favourite event for Senators captain Daniel Alfredsson, who has become a huge supporter of the event and what it does to assist the youth of the community.

"(Getting involved) appealed to me because it is for the youth, which can never be supported enough," said Alfredsson. "I was involved a little bit within the Boys and Girls Club and then I got asked to get more involved with Ringside for Youth. It's a great event, it's a lot of fun and you meet a lot of good people. And you raise a lot of money there as well."

While golf tournaments are a popular charity choice at this time of year, Ringside For Youth — which was held previously at the historic Aberdeen Pavilion — is different.

"I like it because it's a different kind of charity (event) than most," said Alfredsson. "It's not just a dinner or a golf tournament and dinner. You get entertained, you have a lot of fun when you go there and you support a good cause."

Former heavyweight champion Evander Holyfield is a special guest at tonight's proceedings.
